What kind of fish can live in the tank with angelfish?

Many of the Tetra family of fish have similar water requirements as do Corydoras catfish and some of the Amazonian Dwarf cichlids from the Apistograma family. Knowing that Angelfish (Pterophylum scalare) are cichlids and will hunt (as a pack sometimes)and trap and eat small fish, I would avoid Neons but would probably include Cardinal Tetras as about the smallest fish to house with Angels. The minimum sized tank I would use for Angelfish to live in is 60 Gallons.

Can you put neons with African Dwarf Frogs?

Yes as long as your tank is big enough for them and you have a filter and heater in it. Neons are schooling fish so you need at least three of them for them to be healthy. I believe that neons get to be two inches and the rule of thumb is one gallon for every inch of fish for tropical fish. Which means you would need at least a six gallon tank in order to have neons but a ten gallon tank is ideal.

What fish get along with angelfish?

They are Cichlids and as such will hunt, kill and eat fish that are small enough to fit into their mouths. They are also slow moving fish most of the time and have long flowing fins which tend to be nibbled if they are in with fast swimming fin nippers. The best company for angels are Tetras, Rasboras, Danios, Dwarf Cichlids, Livebearers, etc. I would avoid all large aggressive fish.

How do yo prepare cichlids to eat?

If you're talking about humans eating cichlids, it's basically the same as for any other fish. I don't know how to explain it, but if you look up how to fillet a fish, you'll find it pretty easily. If you're talking about feeding cichlids in the aquarium, this really depends on the species. The dwarf cichlid species (mostly south american) are often very delicate and require a diet of high-quality flakes and live food. Most other cichlids get quite big and should not be fed flake food because they can't eat enough of it to get adequate nutrition - it's sort of like a human trying to eat soup with a fork. The best food for most cichlid species is a high quality pellet food - I highly recommend NewLife Spectrum. Choose the pellet size based on the size of the fish.
